The restoration and rehabitation of Crowley Museum and Nature Center's 190 acres has begun.
The historic Pine Level Trail and the majority of the pine flat woods have become dangerously overgrown and infested with invasive non-native foliage and is now a fire hazard not only to Crowley but to its natural inhabitants such as deer, bobcats and migratory bird species. By restoring the flat woods through controlled burns, underbrush clearing and the planting of healthy native plants, this practice will re-introduce many species of animals that have long since vacated the area.
During this process, Crowley will be minimizing its operating schedule for the safety of its visitors while the controlled burns and heavy equipment used for brush clearing are in operation. Beginning July 1 through Dec. 31, Crowley will be open to the public from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturdays.
Crowley is currently seeking financial assistance to complete the project. Anyone interested in making a donation can do so at www.cmncfl.org/donate.htm.
For more information, call 322-1000.
